There is a grumpiness in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to podcasting.

It had to happen one day. By sheer coincidence, life and work had been rough on all three members of the Four Faces of Delusion this week, brewing a cocktail which brought together Doc, Hayden and Matt in equally grumpy moods to record this podcast.

We start with Matt’s report on his recent visit to the “Day of the Doctors 2” event where he actually got offered a jelly baby by the great man himself, witnessed Sylvester McCoy getting his mojo back, heard a story which forever trumps Matthew Waterhouse’s anecdote of finding out that he’d been written out, and Matt splashes the cash in the dealers’ room. Then Doc tells of the parcel of goodies he received which left him thoroughly mystified for a good five minutes and Hayden whores himself out on eBay to part-fund a trip to the USA.

We look at the rumours of an incomplete season in 2016 and reveal the identity of the actress destined to play the Thirteenth Doctor.

In the second half of the show, we give full rein to our grumpiness by building on last time’s “Guilty Treasures” – but this time it’s Guilty Hates. Luckily, the grumpiness of each podcaster’s choice provokes passionate defences by the other two. You haven’t heard this much passion on Diddly Dum since the week Doc did his 20 minute rant about fan forums.

Along the way, we preview the future Big Finish collections – “The Duggan Chronicles” and “The Neeva Chronicles”.
